TheMan has this REALLY ANNOYING habit of trying to startle me. Not enough to terrify me, but just enough to make me jump.
I think he finds it amusing.
He says he just wants to help me be not so jumpy. (um…so maybe try not popping around corners unexpectedly??)
We were sitting on the couch watching tv, and he makes this movement with his hands towards my face. He’s a good 2 feet from my face, but normally, I’d still flinch.
And this time I didn’t.
“Oh, honey, look! It’s working. You didn’t flinch. I’m desensitizing you.”
“This way you won’t be so jumpy and paranoid over everything.”
“Yeah. Well, you’re going to miss my jumpy paranoid ass when the zombie apocalypse comes, and I’m not as hyper-vigilant thanks to your damn desensitization training!”
Somehow, it ALWAYS comes back to zombies. Always.
Slightly Similar Nonsense:
- Everything comes back to zombies
- Zombies aren’t like aliens
- Today is a Lazy Day
- Blogging, Drafts and Zombies
